    • Located at the gates of Bayonne and along the Nive, Plaine d'Ansot is a sensitive natural area of 100 hectares offering a green island in periurban area. Integrated into the Natura 2000 network, this regulated site is an area of barthes, consisting of a mosaic of natural environments (woods, meadows, reed beds, streams...) sheltering a particular flora and fauna.

      Various facilities are available to the public: Maison des Barthes, public reception area, picnic area, ornithological observatory ... Visitors can also count on the presence of the Bayonne Natural History Museum and its scientific exhibitions. The discovery trails allow you to explore the site on foot, by bike or on horseback.

      Many activities (scientific animations, creative workshops, nature outings...) are also available to the public throughout the year.

    New exhibits every 4 months. The natural museum is small (compared let's say to the one in Toulouse). But the settings are cool (by the river along the river). We keep going back....

    I didn't have the opportunity to visit the museum since it was closed for health reasons, but I walked through the plain and the walk is nice. By bike, on foot ... To run or like me that day, on a scooter, it's a nice walk to do.
